No, I'm not back, have no fear, just passing through sharing something that may benefit some of you, and then I'll be out of your hair. Long story short, I have reworked the few online tools I have created previously, updated them, upgraded then with extra options and added a few new ones. Some of them were written 10+ years ago and it was showing, so now they're all standarized, built around the same core using Bootstrap Shards, which ensures good cross-browser compatibility, decent handling of mobile devices and optimization for use with touchscreens, plus some modern bells and whistles that just make everything better. There are now 11 tools total available for you at tools.sariel.pl and here's a complete list with updates. Enjoy!

Gear Ratio Calculator

  • overhauled layout with tabs
  • checkbox for adding planetary wheel hubs to the final gear ratio
  • updated list of motors
  • option to select not only type of a motor but also number of motors
  • new 'Gears and numbers of teeth' tab helping to identify which gear has how many teeth
  • all gear images rendered anew for more clarity
  • planetary gear ratio calculator now calculates ratios for all three possible setups
  • detection of incompatible gears and warning when you select them (this mainly applies to 14t gear and worm gears)
  • annular 60t gear added to both standard and planetary calculator
  • updated, clearer images in the gear coupler
  • gear coupler now includes combinations involving the 28t gear
